Okay, if anyone puts down one drama at the expense of the other just to troll shit up then imma yeet you right out of the comments section, m’kay? The production teams are good to drama fans to finish up 2020 as tons of teasers are dropping left and right. Two of the most anticipated sageuk dramas of 2021 both dropped 30 second previews and OMOMOMO I love and already want to tease each for different reasons. First off let’s get to SBS sageuk Hong Chun Gi, given the English title of Red Sky, starring Kim Yoo Jung and Ahn Hyo Seob based on the novel by the same writer as The Moon Embraces the Sun. The teaser is moody and melancholy and subdued, great visuals all around except for the hairstyle given to Ahn Hyo Seob.
He looks like a sageuk version of a vampire yangban going to the banging new gisaeng house, if you want to give him a mane of glory (rather than topknot) why have half of it combed back so he looks so cheesy especially coupled with the red eyes. Please change it up later in the drama pretty please he’s so handsome don’t make me want to constantly re-arrange his hair. For KBS drama River Where the Moon Rises, both leads Kim So Hyun and Ji Soo are in countryside mode so messy hair and outfits and soooo adorable with the met cute. It’s like if Hae Soo was a warrior princess and fell for 14. As cute as they are though, Kang Ha Neul totally steals the teaser with his 3 seconds, makes me wonder what the drama would have been like if he and Son Ye Jin didn’t pass on it and the production aged it down 10 years to cast the youngster leads. Over all low A- grade for both teasers.
